Cheating: It's As American As Apple Pie

It's reported that the widely trumpeted entry of Team Toyota in formerly All American NASCAR racing has been hammered in a cheating scandal.

I know, I know, this is supposed to be an aviation blog.....but this stuff is interesting.

Michael Waltrip's Camry failed inspection when a mystery substance was found in the intake manifold and the fuel. Speculation's rife as to what the mystery substance is. Waltrip's crew chief was ejected from the Daytona speedway grounds, and the team director was suspended indefinitely. The car was confiscated, which is most unusual.

According to Waltrip, Toyota had nothing to do with all this, and it was an unidentified person on the team who was responsible. Mike, watch that nose and if you have problems check with Pinocchio.

What this suggests, of course, is that the performance isn't there.


Guys who don't have ED don't need Viagra to perform. Neither do racing teams.

I'd respectfully submit that Nascar is the "pro wrestling" of motorsports. It is all controlled by a single family, and they are arbitrary and capricious in their application of the byzantine rules. Just ask Jack Rausch racing. I think you give Nascar a little too much credit.

After all, this is the "sport" that banned Dodge in the 70s because the Daytona was "too fast".
